Standing on a dominant hill next to the Grand Sérail building, Saint Nichan is the cathedral church of the Armenian Orthodox community of Lebanon. It was built in 1938 in the typical Armenian church architectural-style, but with some Art Déco features. It is surrounded by a small garden with good views of the Lebanese mountains. The cathedral was restored in 2004.

A magnificent structure lurched in the heart of the Lebanese capital

Splendid cathedral. Unique architecture and one doesn't have to be religious to be inspired and impressed by this house of God.

It is a lovely church nestled in downtown Beirut right next to the governmental institution the Serail. The first Armenian Church to be established in Beirut city reminding us of the presence of the Armenian diaspora in the country. Its architecture and interior is breathtaking. Nice pictures can be taken from outside in different angle.
